Terminal Convention 4-26 November 2011
Terminal Convention, Liverpool began with a 30hr/2min event.
The duration and curation of the event reflected a series of significant events that occured in the lead up to the first Terminal Convention that took place in March 2011 at the disused international airport in Cork, Ireland.
The events themes considered issues of death, travel, chance and time.
At 16.48 on the 4th November 2011, a 30hr/2min series of events started with the official Press Launch of Terminal Convention Liverpool. Static Gallery was open to the public for the 30hr/2min duration. In this period there was a series of overlapping live-link ups with international art spaces and clubs:
